Tesco to offer iPhone in UK on December 14th

According to a report from BBC News, British department store Tesco will begin to sell the iPhone in the UK starting on December 14th on a twelve-month contract. The lowest rate plan is expected to be £20 per month (US$32.50), while an 8GB iPhone 3G will sell for £222 (US$360) on a twelve-month contract, the shortest currently available in the UK. Customers willing to sign a 24-month £60 (US$98) per month contract can get the 8GB iPhone 3G or 16GB iPhone 3GS for free. By comparison, O2 sells the base iPhone 3G model for approximately £97 (US$160) for the handset and a lowest rate plan of £30 (US$50) on an 18-month contract, while Orange provides rate plans as low as £30 (US$50) on an 18-month contract with a free iPhone. Vodafone is also expected to begin carrying the iPhone next year but has not announced any pricing details as of yet.

Tesco isn’t a department store in the UK - it’s a supermarket (although it does operate department stores in other markets, such as the Czech Republic, which could be where your confusion originates…)

Yeah Tesco are offering a minimum contract for £30 a month on their network, however i think Organge, who’ve also just got iPhone rights, are also releasing a similar package, so we won’t have to fork out loads of money to get on the iPhone band wagon
